Reminder to apply to be an AP Reader (meaning after the AP exams near the beginning of summer, you grade the non-multiple-choice sections of AP exams).
It’s a great opportunity to see (and grade) hundreds of student work samples, learning the exact process for using and applying the rubric to score an entry.
For the upcoming year, College Board says they’ll have some onsite scoring (in Kansas City, for CSP), but this year they’re also offering “distributed” scoring (do it at home in your jammies).
I suggest applying if you’re interested! Linky link: collegeboard.org/readap (scroll down to the two yellow buttons for either onsite or online reading)
Last year I was a reader in Kansas City and spent over a week grading hundreds of Explore PTs. Even though they tweaked the rubric and instructions this year, the experience definitely still provided much insight on the process readers go through to determine a score.
Feel free to ask questions, as in addition to me, there were many other readers last year who taught the code.org curriculum and are likely on this forum.
